Okay- it’s Blog Threads day! 😀
I’ve been having waaaaaay too much fun designing these shirts, y’all. This time, I was inspired by my dreamer, I mean, hubby…
…and our sweet baby boy in Haiti:
That’s my proud mama pose. 😉
And when Kevin’s sample “Dreamer” shirt came back from the print shop, well, I just had to have one of those printed for me, too:
It’s a positive spin on the “haters gonna hate” phrase I’ve been seeing all over the place. (Fun story: My friend Ever (pictured below) told me we shouldn’t say the “h” word a couple of years ago. I thought that was such great advice. I’ve tried not to say it since! #ParentingGoals)
I designed two kids shirts this month, too: All Good Things Are Wild And Free (which I’ve decided to release in August because I want to change the text color) and Check Meowt.
The kids shirts are available in four different sizes: XS (4/5), Small (6/7), Medium (8/9) and Large (10/12). Ever is wearing the Kids Small in the photo above. He was so funny and such a good sport that afternoon! 😀
All of the shirts are super soft Next Level shirts (50% Polyester, 25% Cotton, 25% Rayon)- the same shirts we’ve used in all of our previous 2-day sales.
The adult shirts are available in unisex or ladies cut. The unisex shirts run very true to size and they don’t shrink when you dry them. The ladies cut shirts (which I’m wearing in the photos above) run a couple of sizes small, but also do not shrink when you dry them. For example, I’m 5′-5″ (125 lbs) and I wear a small in the unisex t-shirt, and a large in the ladies cut t-shirt. Here are the size charts for both kinds of cuts:
Ladies Cut v-neck:
HPS stands for “high point of shoulder”. It’s the measurement that goes from the highest point of your shoulder straight down to the hem at the bottom of the t-shirt. The Bust 1″ Blw Amhl measurement is the one that runs from side to side, across the bust area- 1″ down from the bottom of the arm hole if the t-shirt is laying flat. The third measurement (SLV Length Frm Shld Edge) is the outside edge of the sleeve. When I was trying to decide which size to order, I measured one of my other t-shirts that fits well to see which size would be the most comparable.
This month’s fundraiser family is the Wood family:
Aren’t they adorable? 😀
20% of all proceeds will help them pay for their final trip to Haiti! They’re also adopting their (three year old) son from Three Angels Children’s Relief, and they are only two steps away from bringing him home! Their son has a very special place in our hearts because he is one of our little guy’s very best friends. It has been so fun seeing them together- it’s such a special relationship they have! Makes my eyes water just thinking about it. 🙂 There’s only one state (Mississippi) separating us from the Wood family, so I look forward to getting the boys together as often as we can throughout the years!
If you’re interested in ordering a t-shirt, you can hop over to the Blog Threads website by clicking on the banner below:
Once the sale is done (Tuesday night around 10pm CST) I’ll deactivate the site so that I can tally up the order and send it off to the print shop on Wednesday (July 29th). It usually takes about two weeks to get them back from the print shop, so Kevin and I will start packing them up and mailing them out as soon as they get to our house. I’m thinking they’ll all be delivered between August 16th and August 22nd, depending on what part of the world you live in.
Thanks for taking the time to read this far if you’re still here, and let me know if you have any other questions about the “threads”! XO
